Manchester United take on Newcastle tomorrow, with Louis van Gaal hoping to make ti three wins out of three in the Premier League so far. The boys haven’t looked at their brilliant best, but have done enough to get the win on every occasion so far.
Predicted Starting XI: Romero; Darmian, Smalling, Blind, Shaw; Schneiderlin, Schweinsteiger; Mata, Januzaj, Depay; Rooney
Louis van Gaal met the media today and confirmed that Bastian Schweinsteiger could be ready to make his first start for Manchester United, and I expect that to be the only change in the line-up for the game, as the German will replace Michael Carrick who has looked off the pace so far this term.
The defence have done a stellar job facing up to every task thrown their way so that definitely won’t change. Morgan Schneiderlin has done brilliant mopping up the loose balls so he should retain his place.
Juan Mata played an inch-perfect ball through to Jazuzaj against Villa, with the Belgian international tucking it away superbly. We all saw just how good Memphis Depay was against Brugge so he’ll keep his place.
That brings us to the dilemma that is Wayne Rooney. He’s been awful recently, but as he is the club captain I expect Louis van Gaal to keep the faith in our #1 striker for a little while yet.
